  • from US$ 312 / day

The 38-cabin Wilderness Discoverer was built in 1992 and renovated in 2011. The open-plan lounge and dining room have a relaxed atmosphere, with the beautiful cedar wood bar a great place to get a drink and socialise with other guests. There are three decks, including a sun deck, from here you can admire the stunning scenery. The small ship cruise vessel carries an impressive assortment of adventure gear, such as kayaks, skiffs, paddleboards, wetsuits, snorkelling gear, and hiking poles. Still have energy to burn? You can make full use of the onboard fitness equipment. Alternatively, if a little R&R is more in line with your desires, there are two onboard hot tubs. You can choose between four classes of cabin, each with a private bathroom, air conditioning, and a TV/DVD player. Each cabin also has a viewing window. See and hear more of the underwater action with the hydrophone and underwater camera.

Explore the wilds of Alaska on the Wilderness Discoverer. The 21-night Ultra Adventure is an ideal way to head off the tried-and-trodden trail and see remote parts of Alaska in addition to more well-known destinations. Sailing in both directions between Juneau and Sitka, highlights include marveling at the glacial wonders of Glacier Bay National Park, Tracy Arm, and Endicott Arm, spotting whales in the wild, hikes on the islands of Baranof and Chichagof, wildlife watching at South Marble Island, the Brothers Islands, Peril Strait, and Behm Canal, exploring Tongass National Forest and Misty Fjords National Monument, and a cultural visit to a Tlingit community. If you don’t have the time for such a long adventure, shorter cruises are also available. You can spend two weeks sailing between Ketchikan and Sitka or on a round trip from Juneau, seven nights enjoying the delights between Ketchikan and Juneau, or Juneau and Sitka. Alternatively, 12-night adventures between Seattle and Juneau, or vice versa, combine Alaska, Canada’s Inside Passage, and islands near Washington.
